He seems to be his own lucky charm.
Stu MacDonald of Bend buys Oregon Lottery tickets every week, and every week his wife Claudia asks him to "get the winning ticket."
"I'm a very lucky guy," he said in a statement. "I survived cancer twice, and here I am. This is amazing."
After taxes, he took home about $ 1.5 million. A cafe where he bought the quick-pick ticket got a $ 46,000 sales bonus, the lottery states.
An Oregon Lottery spokesman told CNN MacDonald had not agreed to any interviews or to publish photos of himself, so you have to imagine the smile on his face when he found out about his winnings.
Winning the lottery is rare. As 1
in 300 million rare.
MacDonald is lucky. Winning the lottery is very rare.
